"Bent get up dude mom and dad want to get going like right now." A voice said to me through the darkness of the closet that I slept in.
Without even moving or lifting my head I replied groggily "Tell them I will be down later."
The closet door closed and I stood up; stretching from my head all the way to the end of my tail. M claws dug into the carpeted floor as the feeling of refreshment flowed through me. Kyle, the person who woke me, was downstairs talking to his parents.

Right from the first day, being part dragon had never been pleasant. Oh, sure, it might seem like some fantasy geek's dream come true, but take it from me, the whole thing is much closer to a nightmare.
Let's see if I can explain this.
Friday night I was a regular, slightly pudgy guy, and by Saturday, I looked like a giant lizard on steroids. You know what? I hate scales. I hate them. They rub against each other all the time, whenever you move; it's almost like wearing chain mail. Except it's attached to your skin.
Oh, and then there was the actual dragon I'd merged with, who had a nasty habit of arguing with me inside my head.
This is a ridiculous mode of transportation was his current complaint, as I rode my bike down the street. Thankfully, being half dragon comes two-for-one with basic shapeshifting abilities, so I was able to revert mostly back to human form when I wanted. The bad news: I still had two plates of ar
TF Story the Dragons NestAlestra, a young, adventurous, yet kind-hearted girl is exploring the forest near her hometown after hearing a rumor that in a cavern hidden in the forest is an abandoned dragon's nest with eggs that have yet to hatch. Worried about the eggs, Alestra decided to go to the cavern and check on them to see if they were ok, unaware of the destiny that awaited her.TF Story the Dragons Nest4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
After 3 hours of exploring the forest, Alestra finally arrives at the cavern she was looking for. Still concerned about the well being of the eggs, Alestra wasted no time getting inside. The cavern's interior was pretty dark, if it weren't for her flashlight, Alestra wouldn't have been able to see two feet in front of her. She soon saw a faint glow deep in the cavern. She quickly turned the corner to see the source, and there they were. Sitting in a nest made of rocks, were four green dragon eggs, illuminated by a small dragon glow spell, like someone wanted them to be found. Alestra slowly approaches the nest and climbed inside.

The forest was quiet with anticipation as a young brown haired girl stalked her prey. A thick mist had settled over the land making visibility reduced to almost nothing. She carried her bow gently as she searched for a deer.
Vikings were normally quite larger than this young girl but what she lost in size she gained in stealth. This was a test for her to see if she could be like the rest of the Vikings and put some food on the table.
She stood proud as she listened for anything that might lead her to her prey. Her green eyes shone, white teeth adding to their gleam, and a kind face that would make you smile.
This young Viking had a name and she had pride in who she was. She was Sassy; Sassy was kind and caring of others. This trait was not one that was highly looked upon in her clan but it did not stop her.
The quiet surrounding her was broken by a twig snapping a grunt of pain. Once Sassy heard the grunt; her instincts kicked in. Someone was hurt and she needed to help

Hello ladies, gentlemen, dragons and dragonesses allow me to introduce myself. Most of my friends call me "Wattojawa". I live near 3 small towns in York County Pennsylvania. Last summer (2010) I was a 5'6" human. That changed in late August, now I am a 7' tall dragon. My dragon name is "Thunder Claw" and my dragon friends use it. My family uses my human name, John. This will be the story my life since I became a dragon. But, I am going to tell you how I became a dragon first.
I suppose the events that led to this started during the final week of July, I was at Smith Electric Motor Repair talking to my friend, James, who works there about my latest project, a hit & miss electric fan. I don't work there but, I often help
Almighty Dragon - TF - TGThe sky was dark, the air was cold, and everything seemed too quiet. My heart was racing as I held my sword out to the dragon, glaring at me, and piercing my soul. Though I knew she was a danger, she did nothing other than stare at me. In fact, her stare wasn’t even evil like, it was actually calm and comforting. She took a step closer and I tensed up, directing my sword towards her eyes. She spoke in a low voice for a female, “Young mortal, you act afraid of me when I know that you just want to join me. You see me as a danger because of this accursed game, but you love how strong and ferocious I am. You wish to fly among me and my comrades, but alas, you just flee when you see us, because you know that this is not real. But when you awake, you will have a new chance at being in the sky with us. Whether you take the chance or not is up to you, for we are all real. You will be stronger than any of us and you will rule us. The weak shall fear us, but we shall not hurt them, bAlmighty Dragon - TF - TG2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

Tommy's story technically began a month ago. After coming home from school, Tommy's parents noticed something odd about their son: Even though he was sick, it was only his arm that had an off color to it. As days passed, Tommy didn't get any better. In fact, his condition was actually getting worse. His parents took him to his doctor, whom confirmed that he had obtained a disease called "The Dragon Virus". As a recently discovered disease, the Dragon Virus had no known cure. In fact, Tommy was one of the first people who had accuired the disease. Since there was no cure, Tommy's parents knew it was only a matter of time before the Tommy they knew was gone.
Tommy sat in the lobby at the doctor's office. He scratched at his right hand, which was covered by a glove, as was his left hand. The reason for t

"Please don't move, you haven't healed yet." the voice made him turn his head rather abruptly, something not so agreeable when you feel your mind's about to twine in half. "Your wounds might open again."
The voice was sweet yet deep, powerful yet kind, fluent yet sharp. Shaun was forced to look downwards and hold his head between his hands due to the pain from seeing a bright light at the entrance of the room, but he soon felt her soft delicate hands on his skull, and a bit of green hair made its way into his vision.
A soft warmth emanated from the woman, as if she had a tiny sun hidden somewhere within; her touch felt almost magical, the pain instantly easing away and the throbbing weakening with every second her hands touched him. As if making Shaun do it herself, she slowly laid him back on the bed, covering him with the sheets and

“Don’t let her get away!”
These shouts echoed behind her and, with each beat of her heart, she could practically feel them gaining ground. She had to lose them somehow. If the police caught her…if she was thrown in jail…it would all be over. Julia ran as hard as her legs would allow and gripped her only treasure in her arms tightly. Clutched in her sweaty and shaky arms was a simple statue, about 2 feet long and a foot tall. It was some kind of long and elegant dragon made of red crystal! It was so beautiful, and it seemed to catch every ray of light that hit it and bounce it back twice as bright. It was the only thing she’d ever stolen that she could never bring herself to sell. She’d been holding onto it for almost 2 years now and she’d grown a sort of attachment to this dragon statue. She had to protect it…she had to keep it.
Julia was a thief, plain and simple. She was no master criminal and certainly
Rebirth (Ice Dragon TF)I winced again as I tripped over yet another rock and fell on my knees. This time, I stayed there for a while, sobbing. Tears dripped down my mud-stained face and onto my blood-stained pants. I had been in this damn jungle for four hours now, separated from my camping buddies after I had left them to satisfy my thirst at the nearby river. Turns out I had a really bad sense of direction and even worse luck. I must have taken a wrong turn somewhere - I wasn't able to find the way back in the time it had taken me to get to the river in the first place. "SHIT!" I screamed, slamming my fist into the ground. I retracted my now bleeding hand, regretting that violent action, too late.Rebirth (Ice Dragon TF)4 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

Sadly, I was not as lucky with regard to my wallet, as I discovered that it contained a grand total of two dollars. Still, I had to eat, as my stomach had grumbled during the first lecture of the day. Thankfully, I was able to afford a cup of fruit punch and a plate of chicken rice.
Having not much time left before the next lesson, I wolfed down the food, together with the punch, which tasted strange. Something told me that my stomach would give me trouble over it later.
I was right, and throughout the entire day, my stomach was churning, and my organs felt as it they were going on a tour of my entire body. This led to my loss of concentration during the subsequent lessons, and I w

I had decided to take an early walk and was now on the way home. I was crossing the road when it happened. A car hit me from the side. When I was flying the whole time seemed to slow down and I felt something rush through my body. Then I blacked out and crashed against the wall. The driver of the car just went on like nothing had happened. For my luck the next passenger that saw me called the emergency ambulance. They came quickly and brought me to the hospital. When they found out who I was they informed my parents, who came as fast as the could. When they reached the hospital they were led to my room. I had to look terrible.

Her body bolted upright, gasping hungrily for air. Her head was in a thick racing fog and the dark room was filled with a loud, incessant noise: a rapid thumping, as if someone were running up the hardwood stairs in her apartment. She quickly felt the tension compelling in her chest and took her clammy palm to it, pressing down as hard as she could, trying desperately to calm herself down. Still her rapid breaths were thin and she began to feel drained with each successive inhale. Searching frantically she finally felt the small smooth object that rested around her neck and held it in her hand tightly, as her violent pants turned into raspy shallow cries, her eyelids damp.
The pain after a nightmare. She saw her, alone and helpless; frightened. Everything was foggy and invisible, like a blank void to her, but still moving and drifting slowly. Bone-chilling. She shivered viciously. She could see straight down into an abyss of distant emptiness. Face-to-

Chapter 1: The Tale of Cynia
On top of a rocky mountain top covered in snow from the winter storms there was a cave. In the cave were stalagmites hanging from the ceiling that would make the cave seem like the inside of a beasts jaw. Jade, ruby, and even some pieces of gold laid scattered on the cold floor of the cave along with a sleeping dragon hatchling.
The dragon hatchling was female. Her scales were a beautiful green which covered her entire body except her underbelly which was a tan color. The spikes running down her back were yellow and were neatly spaced all the way down her spine. The horns on the top of her head were very white along with her claws on all four of her legs. Her wings laid flat across her back and her tail wrapped around her body as she continued to sleep.
A few moments later a larger dragon that had blue eyes and very similar characteristics to the dragon hatchling flew into the entrance of the cave

"Thank you and good night!" I said, sending the last costumer away.
I slumped on my chair and sighed. It had been a hell of a weekend. I worked nearly non-stop for two days and I was dead tired. Cashier life isn't as easy as one might think, particularly at this time of the year: Christmas. Fortunately, I was free to do whatever I wanted for the next two days, and I'd take the most advantage of it.
I snapped out of my thoughts and called my supervisor to end my working day. She arrived rather quickly, to my surprise. Looks like I wasn't the only one looking forward to a comfortable bed.

The Dragon Chronicles PrologueEver wondered where dragons come from, if theyre from this world, or even this universe. Some think that theyre creatures from another planet; others think that theyre really from earth, just creatures that were created by God or evolved from some type of other animal. Still others think that theyre from another universe or realm closely resembling our own in every which way. They say that all of the mythological creatures come from there, from dragons to gryphons to unicorns, but say that the dragons rule this world and had the power to cross over to our world. Some say its just dragons and gryphons that live in this realm and the other mythological creatures live in yet another realm all together. Some say that the dragons and gryphons come in different sizes and colors as well as range from quadruped, anthropomorphic, to taurs. Some have said that there are also different species of gryphon as well, but cant be proven. They would say that the dragThe Dragon Chronicles Prologue6 years ago in Fantasy More Like This

These questions ran through 16 year old Josh's mind. His friends had always said he was like a dragon, even earning him the nickname "Dragon Boy" among his group of friends. Regardless of his nickname, Josh himself loved dragons. Even at 16, he had always wished he could meet one. Oddly enough, Josh could actually sympathsize more with dragons than with most humans.
Some of Josh's "dragon-like" traits were the fact that he was a loner. He didn't have many friends. The reason for his having so little friends was because he was very skeptical about new people, even more so than most others. He also hated being around a lot of people. Whenever he was in a large group, even if it wasn't that many people, he always felt too cramped. His parents and teachers thought he may possibly have had some form of autism.
